This is wonderful.
Well done indeed.

Is there also a Suvega lurking about? and one of those Peugeot Mopeds I ve forgotten what they were called but they had alloy wheels and a stylish look, in the eighties.
And of course the old Silver Plus and Explorer...

Congratulation on bringing alive every enthusiast dream.

I visit Mangalore often and never knew about this place. Next time I will make sure to drop by.

Great collection. it should be tough to maintain such a marvelous collection in such a good state. How do you do it? how many people are associated in upkeep of this vast collection of vehicles in such a nice condition.

@smartcat....

Yes it is Ducati TS 98
Everyday i see placards of "PV vintage and classics" stuck on walls and poles around the colony where I live and wondered what it was. Pleasantly surprised that such a nice collection of vehicles exists so near to my house. One of these days, i will try and visit your place. Congratulations on having such a wonderful collection.

Congrats to Girish for making his dream a reality. Girish is a true enthusiast, always helping others out and relentlessly chasing his passion. This display is an inspiration to us all!

Surely would have, thanks to the repair work being done on the Upper road that has forced everyone to use the awfully narrow 2nd Cross road to ingress/egress the area.
What's your ride? I drive a White Grand i10 and a Maroon Figo(New).

Congrats Girish,

This is awesome. Now we know why you were not so regular on social media . This is so nice. I really like your love for obscure mopeds and bikes. Especially the HITODI. Never seen the image of her, only heard about it from Dr. Anjan at some other thread.

Whenever I am there, will give you a call to see your awesome collection.
